Students from all over the world come to Harvard Extension. In my classes I’ve had CEOs, government officials, entrepreneurs, scientists, medical doctors, PhDs, and people of all stages of their careers in business and the not-for-profit sector. Adult learners are making a deliberate choice to study, and they’re interested in the topic and very willing to do the work. It’s a wonderful group to teach. ”
